Urgent please help! Dealer messed up my car, might blame me!
So I installed my front shifter bushing about 3 weeks back on my 2011 WRX and was driving around fine and dandy for a couple weeks. Then noticed a whirr when clutched so I took the car into the dealer and had them take a look. They replaced the throwout bearing but then told me that they also heard noise from the drive shaft, so they ended up replacing that along with the propeller.
Problem starts when I pick up the car, I think when they reassembled the transmission after the drive shaft install they didnt bolt things on properly since my shifter began to move around in 3rd - 5th when accelerating/letting off the gas. Not just a little, but like a good inch of motion, like it's popping out of something.
I immediately called the dealer, told them of the problem, and dropped the car off the next day. However, after inspecting the car, the dealer noticed my front bushing install was non-stock and basically said that because there was a tiny amount of lateral motion in the bushing (this is apparently not uncommon with Kartboy bushings) that this was responsible for the shifter motion.
My concern is that they try to void the warranty. I think this is bs because
a) I had this thing in for a few weeks and had zero issue until they messed with it and
b) Even if I go back to the stock bushing, that they might try to claim that I did a shit job installing it and messed up the tranny - again this is absurd because I had no problems until they worked on the car - and charge me $330 for the inspection plus whatever else they want to "fix " the issue
What are my options here? I really need some help.
